  • This is a dataset of spot gauged river flows (m3 s-1) at multiple sites along the River Frome, Dorset, UK, conducted during the year 2022. All sites are contained within the stretch of river between the Environment Agency gauging stations located at Dorchester and East Stoke, i.e. the lower part of the River Frome. The monitoring sites included the major tributaries along this river reach, which are: the South Winterbourne, Tadnoll Brook, and the River Win. In total, 19 river channels were spot gauged at 11 river cross-sectional locations. Due to the braided nature of the river, some locations required multiple channels to be measured to produce a total cross-sectional flow for that part of the river. The river cross-sectional locations were evenly spaced, approximately every 3 km along the river reach. Measurements were taken on multiple flow accretion survey days between 12/04/2022 and 05/11/2022. On each day, as many of the sites were spot gauged as possible, working upstream to downstream.

  • Prevalence of quinolone qnrS resistance gene in the aquatic environment from the Avon river catchment area receiving treated wastewater from 5 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), serving 1.5 million people and accounting for 75% of inhabitants living in the catchment area in the South West of England. Funded by NERC Grant NE/N019261/1 Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/102f8141-2a9a-4ffd-89f6-961af36ddcb3

  • This dataset comprises of weekly concentrations of fluoroquinolones in wastewater and receiving waters collected in the Avon river catchment South West UK. The following fluoroquinolones were analysed: (±)-ofloxacin, (±)-ofloxacin-N-oxide, (±)-desmethyl-ofloxacin, (±)-lomefloxacin, (±)-moxifloxacin, S,S-moxifloxacin-N-sulfate, R-(+)-besifloxacin, (±)-prulifloxacin, (±)-ulifloxacin, (±)-flumequine and (±)-nadifloxacin; ciprofloxacin, desethylene-ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and nalidixic acid. The concentrations of (fluoro)quinolones were measured in receiving treated wastewater from 5 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), which serves 1.5 million people accounting for 75% of inhabitants living in the catchment area in the South West of England.

  • This dataset is a compilation of water quality data for the River Frome catchment, Dorset, UK. The data have been sourced from the Environment Agency and from Wessex Water Ltd., the water utility company for the catchment area. The monitoring sites are specifically located in the lower part of the River Frome, between the Environment Agency gauging stations at Dorchester and East Stoke. The dataset includes water quality measurements for boreholes, sewage treatment work (STW) final effluents, tributaries, and main river channels. In total there are 21 monitoring sites. Water quality measurements date from 1976 to 2022. The main river channel and tributary sites are typically monitored on a monthly basis and the STW final effluents typically on a weekly basis. The borehole data can vary from weekly to monthly, depending on the determinand and borehole measured.

  • This dataset contains water temperature measurements at two different locations in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. Water temperatures were measured using RBR SoloT thermistors (measured in deg C) and HOBO TidbiT v2 loggers (measured in deg F). The dataset consists of water temperature measurements from two locations at Durleigh reservoir between 22 February 2018 and 5 October 2018. Measurements were taken at 10 minute intervals.

  • This dataset contains water chemistry and phytoplankton cell counts collected from 3 different depths at 3 different sites in Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England, during 2018. Water samples were collected on 22 Feb, 5 Apr, 20 Apr, 30 May, 13 Jun, 27 Jun, 9 Jul, 24 Jul, 20 Aug, 21 Aug, 22 Aug, 23 Aug, 24 Aug, and 5 Oct 2018. The data available to download includes phytoplankton cell counts (cells/ml), turbidity (NTU), pH, Ammonia (mg/l), total oxidised nitrogen (mg/l) nitrite (mg/l), nitrate (mg/l), ammonium (mg/l), orthophosphate (mg/l), silica (mg/l), Potassium (mg/l), Calcium (mg/l), Geosmin (ng/l), 2-MIB (ng/l), total and soluble manganese, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, and aluminium (all: mg/l).

  • This dataset contains seven month monitoring of weather conditions at Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England, during 2018. A Delta T WS-GP1 weather station was installed approximately 4 m above the surface of the reservoir between 5 April and 5 October 2018.

  • The dataset contains 5-day of water velocities at Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. A Nortek Vector acoustic doppler velocimeter (ADV) was used to collect the dataset. The ADV was deployed between 20 August 2018 (15:00) and 24 August 2018 (09:15), located approximately 30 m north of the surface mixers in Durleigh reservoir. The surface mixers were operating when the ADV was deployed and were switched off between 07:17 on 22 August and 16:42 on 23 August 2018.

  • The dataset contains light penetration through the water column at a Durleigh Reservoir in Somerset, England. HOBO Pendant Temperature/Light 8K Data Loggers (Onset) were positioned at 0.5 m, 1.5 m, and 2.5 m depths on a temperature chain Durleigh. The loggers were deployed between 30 May 2018 and 5 October 2018. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/fc1cf9a7-d7b0-4948-8328-497d6e071950
